DMF Annual Spring Benefit - Instruments of Change

Daniel’s Music Foundation cordially invites you to our Annual Spring Benefit dedicated to creating opportunities for people of all abilities to engage with and appreciate each other while celebrating the joy of music together. Please join us for a very special evening. Enjoy inspiring performances, be touched by moving stories, win exciting prizes and meet other members of the DMF community. Learn more about our programs and how you can help us bring the magic of music to more deserving individuals. 


This year’s honoree is René Plessner. As a long-time friend and supporter of Daniel’s Music, René’s compassion, generosity and commitment has directly contributed to the ongoing understanding and appreciation of individuals with disabilities. Most importantly, his support has made a direct impact on the confidence, well-being and joy of the participants who benefit from our programs.
